DISPLAYING WRONG OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE IN THE DASHBOARD AND CLOCK AT NIGHT TIMES NOT LIGHTING UP

2004 Subaru Forester • 200,000 miles

My 2004 Subaru Forester has been displaying wrong outside temperature in the dash board. How do you think I can fix it?

and my second question is that the car's clock back light is not working so I have to replace it. Do you know how to remove the cover of the clock separately? It seems a bit difficult remove it.

Some have also reported erroneous readings from it getting wet from powerwashing or extreme weather.
